Be Mindful of Your Syntax on: Reduce Repetition Using the repeat Function

When completing this challenge (Reduce Repetition Using the repeat Function) , be especially mindful when typing your code as adding a space between the word “repeat” and your open parenthesis “(” allows you to advance to the next challenge question, BUT it is not the correct code and does not produce the correct result (the grid should NOT change).

This code:
grid-template-columns: repeat (3, 1fr);
grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);

Watching the “Get Help - Watch a Video” for this challenge helped me resolve the discrepancy in my code and produce the correct result. Thank you for providing supplemental videos that are short, to the point and provide key info to help you work through coding issues.

Thank you!
